Find Happiness Without Changing a Thing with Gail Brenner
So many of us seek practical solutions to unhappiness and dissatisfaction, convinced that if we could just crack the right code, we'll be on our way to peace and fulfillment. But unhappiness can't be solved by tweaking problematic situations. Psychologist Gail Brenner, Ph.D., offers insight in her new book, The End of Self Help: Discovering Peace and Happiness Right at the Heart of Your Messy, Scary, Brilliant Life. When we focus on external circumstances - our job, our relationships, our belongings - in the belief that they define us, it creates the unhappiness we experience. When we intentionally shift our attention away from the thoughts and feelings bringing us unhappiness, our agitated feelings give way to a far more peaceful and constructive frame of mind.
